France Shelf Novelty Animated

Catalog Description:

C.1900, French, "JESTER" Bell ringer alarm in good condition. This clock looks to be 90 percent original; the hands have been replaced, and the original bell broke off and was replaced with a toy bell that looks OK. The rest of the clock appears untouched; black finish with some loss and chips. A cute novelty that does not turn up often. Ticks and alarms in lively fashion (jester wags the bell in his left hand). Porcelain dial with some abrasion from the alarm set hand. We sold one in April 2001, lot 333, for $2000+. Height 11 inches
